2. Cortlandt Street

The Cortlandt street 1 train station is the only subway station to still be closed after the terrorism attack on 9/11. The station was located under the World Trade Center site, and much of the nearby tunnel leading to the station needed to be completely rebuilt after being crushed by debris. The station and its entranceway survived, and have been closed ever since. When we visited, the walls still contained spray painted markings left by first responders who searched the station on September 15th, 2001.
